So you don’t have a cabin but you’ve got fever for cabin style–here are some ideas for bringing a bit of the woodsy feeling of a cabin into your home:

Great White MCM

A bit of "Great White Mid-century Modern" in Singapore. | japanesetrash.com

This glimpse of a Singapore apartment includes some surprising nods to the Great White North, with a healthy dose of mid-century modern mixed in. The patchwork cover on a reproduction Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Side Chair is an interesting touch, but my eye is on that great Canada-map-becomes-elk print in the background:

What’s more inclusive of nature than a cabin? Whether it’s a restored old family place or a brand new structure, a cabin sums up everything that living in nature is all about. Here are a few of my favorite cabins:

Hudson Woods

A contemporary cabin in the woods with all the modern conveniences, including a pool? Count me in. Hudson Woods by Lang Architecture is my kind of roughing it.

The charred spruce exterior — using a Japanese technique called shou sugi ban — of this Alaskan Modernist cabin is nothing short of breathtaking-which completely suits the equally breathtaking natural surroundings.

This Washington state retreat, which I’ve dubbed Camp Indianola, has all the right touches and a pared-back style that includes exposed log beams, integrated stone walls, and even an antler chandelier. Who needs more than that?
